For this milestone, you will participate in a discussion in which you develop a research study design in preparation for your final research investigation and also assist your classmates in refining their own proposed study.
What research design are you proposing to address your research question? Explain your reasoning for choosing it. Why is it appropriate?
How have you built upon the initial research design ideas you came up with in the Module Two discussion?
What new elements are you adding to your
research design based on the Module Four Research Gap Worksheet activity?
How will your research design be implemented?
How will you account for any issues of ethics in your proposed research question?
FOR THE NEXT DISCUSSION RESPOND TO YOUR PEERS
In critiquing their proposed studies, consider the strengths and limitations of their proposed study. Support your critique with examples from your own analysis of research design presented in the course
Many studies have looked at the relationship of social anxiety and its relationship to negative social events. One thing is has not shown is research using individuals with a clinical diagnosis of Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) and the link to either antagonistic or non-antagonistic real life negative social events.
My research of Social Anxiety Disorder and the extent of negative social event will be conducted in a clinical setting. Using the Correlational design, the study will be conducted at an outpatient clinic and obtaining informed consent from each client and at any time a client chooses to exit the study they can. Individuals that have been clinically diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder will be administered a series of questionnaires administered by clinical staff pertaining to each individual’s case. This research design being conducted in a controlled environment would contain any possible interference with the outcome of the study. Each individual would be in a familiar place with familiar clinical staff which would reduce their anxiety so that it does not skew the results of the research.
Are young adults that have been clinically diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder derived from either an antagonistic or non-antagonistic negative social event?
